Is Labour now a co-leadership or is it just a slow leadership transition?

Maybe this is usual practise recently and I’ve just missed it, but isn’t it strange that a sitting day where both the PM and leader of the opposition will be in the House the Opposition Deputy all gets a Primary Q to the PM?

Cullen (under Clark) or English (under Key) would never have had a primary on a Tuesday.  Other MPs sometimes get supplementary questions (or primaries where there is a Minister answering on the PM’s behalf), but this seriously points to who is making decisions in terms of Grant Robertson promotion House strategy.

DAVID SHEARER to the Prime Minister: Does he stand by all his statements on jobs and employment?

GRANT ROBERTSON to the Prime Minister: Does he stand by his statement “What we do environmentally matters a great deal, but we also want jobs and we also want to make sure we’re not prioritising that over everything else. I think we’ve got that balance about right”?

    It’s almost like a monty python show …. Grant the gay tele tubbie itching to be leader of the lacklustre labour party.

  • Well spotted; is Mr Robertson getting ideas above his station?

    Can’t you guys realise that Sheep is growing leadership in the party by giving chances to others to shine also. This is considered a great leadership quality folks.
